Change Date on Paid Invoice



My Ltd Company Year End was 31.10.2018.

My accountant prepares the statutory accounts from QF data - I gave him access.

My accountant also has his own QF account.

On 1st December 2018 he sent me an invoice through QF and I haven’t revoked ownership of the invoice.

I paid the invoice today and marked it as paid in QF.

This afternoon I looked through the statutory accounts to map the figures from QF with them.

I saw his accountancy fee of £xx listed in the P&L as an expense for the year ended 31.10.18.

Because of this I looked around QF to try to change the date of the invoice from 01.12.18 to 31.10.18 - but I can’t find a way to do it.

I run the P&L report in QF for the next year end, and the fee shows as an expense for this year instead of last financial year.

I haven’t run the year end tool for last year yet, I was waiting for the corporation tax figure.

I can’t even think of a journal that would let me move the expense into last year.

Hope I’ve posted this in the right topic area and thanks in advance for any help :slight_smile:


You have accrual booked as at 31.10.2018 for accountancy fee and reversed the very next day, this way when you get actual invoice in Dec 2018, it wont come into 2019 YE P&L
